  1. All right, time to add to the numerous new challenges popping up. The premise of the challenge is simple. Show your support for our loneliest planet, Dres!This is a challenge to perform a megamission to make Dres feel happy, so be creative on how you want to do it! I myself will be doing a circumnavigation of Dres by land later, so yeah. If your mission uses Dresteroids, the mission must directly relate to Dres in one way/shape/form. If this is a bit vague, notify me, and I'll put in some baseline examples. We at DresAwarenessLTD are here to emphasize large-scale missions to our lonely friend, Dres! A simple Land-Return mission is not enough to us, go further, and beyond! Not just Dres now, no. While Dres forever remains our Number 1, I have decided to include Eeloo and Moho on our planetary awareness list! That's about it. Carry on. Suggestions, which by no means you need to follow to complete this: Orbit: Not just one satalite, have a full NETWORK Have a space-station, big enough to be classified as BIG (unless you have a bad laptop like me) Surface: Rover? No, MANY rovers Lander? Ok, lot's O' Kerbals! Mining ops? Ok, LOT's! Base? Ok, make it BIG! Rules: -Please, no f12 or Hyperedit -Wheaton's Law -Try keeping it stock, tell me about a fun mod that doesn't ruin the challenge, and I will look into it Rules Regarding Proof: -Mission Report threads are fine, I encourage this too! -Screenshots, if used, should document at minimum, all iportant burns, manuevers, etc. -Videos are welcome! - Screenshots must show UI at all important events, beauty shots are exempt however. Please be sure to keep the UI visible if it is not a beauty shot Mods Allowed: Mods will now be handled on a case by case basis. To be blunt, all legitimate mods are allowed. That means, this is essentially a rule saying "Do not cheat by proxy of a mod" Ask for mods you find that are "on the fence" Completion badge made by an awesome friend, Dres Supporters! Successful entries will be mentioned here: -RocketPropelledGiraffe, One mission, and we see a craft of pure love Album: http://imgur.com/a/nUikV -Claw, the first to circumnavigate (by rover) Dres!

I'm open to any fun-increasing ideas! -SPAddict
  2. Ok, let's get started with this. Inspired by Turbo Pumped videos, i decided to make a 10,1 ton to Dres. So i get started with the Afterburning engine, with i need to pass 10 minutes to get speed of sound Mach 2 to get to a sub-orbital peform. Now the Spark engines are on, but the "crazy" SAS started to get out of control (why). Peformed an orbital burn of 100k. Now i reached the hard part. Yes, the manuever node to Dres. I went mad when i don't make a target intersect. NOW, finally i get a encounter to Dres. Waitng...waitng....waiting... Ok now capture burn right now. De-orbiting the SSTO. When i tried to land the SSTO....... It exploded....... I WENT SUPER MAD!! Again... So after calming my brain cells i decided to make a rescue mission, in a rocket. So Jeb, Bill, Bob, and Val is on it with an extra lander pod. Now getting to back to Kerbin, land and done! Yes... i went mad two times because i know a bit of KSP,, but i suck at encounters.
  3. Original Text After one thread (Which shall not be named) started the Eeloo, fake, society, I've decided to prove that Eeloo is not evil! Eeloo and Dres! We love both! Appreciation!
  4. Hello! This is a replacement for the Dres Awareness Society as the original thread is quite old. Here is a link to the old thread:
  5. Hey There! I've recently created flags for every destination. I tried to make them look unique even tho some moons look very similar. JSA is the name of my very own space program. If anyone wants to use these flags i've also added an Imgur album with all flags without JSA in the middle. Feel free to use them. https://i.imgur.com/Lttoaty.png https://imgur.com/iJ1TCHz https://imgur.com/PjZPFYX https://imgur.com/kyaHOuD https://imgur.com/8moklYN https://imgur.com/jjqLxpO https://imgur.com/pEYk99g https://imgur.com/v1tGpmr https://imgur.com/V2Yr6TU https://imgur.com/MwUDQS0 https://imgur.com/UwfDkg8 https://imgur.com/bNZvrNi https://imgur.com/DYslwWd https://imgur.com/pCp5GeX https://imgur.com/mNQiNDN https://imgur.com/XmElzzB https://imgur.com/wLRJNV5 https://imgur.com/KiOZSR9 https://imgur.com/pHVsPYJ https://imgur.com/xJ8qlkK https://imgur.com/zegL9QD https://imgur.com/k9r34g3 https://imgur.com/81d42iO https://imgur.com/a/5crpBrQ
  6. Does anyone have a table or list of calculator with the upper limits of the Delta-V require to go from say a 50-100km orbit to a safe landing. I get it wrong too often. I just landed a base segment on Minmus with literally 10 times the Delta-V it needed. I ended up just throwing away all that fuel because it was late at night and I had to get to bed. It would also help if the resource you supply me with also listed optimal acceleration figures for landings. That's been on of my problems in these 155 years too. Help me improve my game, please.
  7. When i accelerate to escape kerbins influence it accidently drops my orbit further than the orbit of Dres. Please help, i need to quickly transport a rover to Duna
  8. This is mainly for a submission for @SpaceplaneAddict's Dres Awareness challenge. This is pretty screenshot heavy, so I'm going to put the bulk of them in spoilers for your viewing inconvenience. Mission: Occupy Dres with a single landing base station, space station, 8 satellite network, and 4 Tetra class ISRU Rover/Landers. The Tetra class Rovander will be capable of returning to the station and biome hopping. Mission completion to be done with two launches from Kerbin using convertible Washburn class ships. Mission Flag: Meet The Ships! Tetra Class Rovander: Equipped with 4 LT-1 landing struts, dual aerospikes, SP-G solar panels, Drill-O-Matic Jrs, and a RefineOre Y-600 Mini ISRU converter. This docking-stackable Rovander is capable of endless Station-Surface-Station trips. Connecting Living Space complient... sorta. If you stretch a bit. Holds one Kerbal. Lance Relay Satellite: I'm sure you've never see a relay satellite before! Washburn Class "IDT Maya": The IDT Maya sports copious amounts of living space, research center, science array, and deep space communication/relay abilities. It also features 8 LT-37L landing struts, as Maya's mission finale is a research base landed on Dres. Core is comprised of 6 Large Advanced Reaction Wheels to minimize RCS usage. Payload is 8 satellites. 6 Comm/relay, 1 Survey Scanner, and 1 Narrow-Band Sat. Bottom piece is a detachable-before-launch Kerbal loading system. Also CLS complient if you tweak your imagination a bit. Crew is 6 Kerbals, you'll meet them below. Washburn Class "IDT TinyTina": The IDT TinyTina is very similar to her sister ship, Maya. Differences include additional decouplers to completely detach the 4 engine nacelles. TinyTina's mission finale is a Rovander Waystation / Science station in low orbit around Dres. Other main difference is the payload, of 4 Tetra rovanders. Ship will launch with a crew of 10. Standard 6 positions as the Maya, with an addition 4 rover pilots. Phase 1.1: Loading Maya: Phase 1.2: Launching Maya: Phase 2.1: Loading TinyTina: Phase 2.2: Launching TinyTina: Phase 3: Satellite Distribution: Phase 4: Rover Relocation: Phase 5: Maya Landing: Phase 6 Rovander Landings: ~6.1: Raysel - Random Spot ~6.2: Josen - Trench ~6.3: Leeford - Maya Base ~6.4: Maubert - North Pole Mission Summary (AKA TL;DR) IDT Maya brought a full 8 satellite network, then touched down on the surface for a permanent base. IDT TinyTina brought 4 Rovanders to Dres. The ship became a space station. The rovers all landed at various parts of the surface, including the north pole, Dres trench, and Maya Base. *** A few notes: Yes I know the bright pink visors are annoying. I probably should have gotten that fixed before I did this, but I was too excited about this mission. (As of writing this, I realized I should have just removed TextureReplacerReplaced after the ships were launched, as I only use it for no helmets in atmosphere.) I probably did it incredibly inefficiently. I know it would have been better to stagger operations more, but meh. Probably would have cut a good two years, at least. I hope you enjoyed reading!
  9. https://dawn.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news-detail.html?id=6982 Dawn Finds Possible Ancient Ocean Remnants at Ceres So, does this mean someone needs to start modding Dres now?... How on Earth (Kerbin) could such a tiny world host liquid water on its surface? It could have never had an atmosphere dense enough to allow it. ...right? 0.o Holy Crap- I buried the lead; DRES NO LONGER HAS AN EXCUSE TO BE BORING.

  11. Hey guys I'm in the middle of a dres mission and a thought /challenge occurred to me,..... Speed records in ksp become kind of arbitrary when on a solar orbit but what's the fastest you can go through the canyon on dres? i e: below the canyon 'top'
  12. Does anybody have ideas for a career mode dres mission? My latest mission ended up failing with Thompberry Kerman stranded on dres and I lost heaps of rep. Post rockets down below \/ . Thank if you comment
  13. W. Kerman

    Dres-1

    Dres, does it exist? Lots of people say it doesn't, and that's why I'm launching a lander to examine EVERYTHING about Dres. (In my science save) This is a one way trip. Equipment: (Science) -GRAVMAX Negative Gravioli Detector -SC-9001 Science Jr. -Mystery Goo™ Containment Unit -PresMat Barometer (forgot it) -2HOT Thermometer -Atmospheric Fluid Spectro-Variometer -Mobile Processing Lab MPL-LG-2 (No seismic detector due to it not being unlocked....) (Refueling) -'Drill-O-Matic' Mining Excavator -Convert-O-Tron 250 ---------------------------------------------------------- The mission will prove if Dres exists, may luck be on the side of the five fine Kerbals embarking upon this mission.
  14. I know, I know not allot of people like Dres. But who said that it is not interesting?! I’m going to speak about Dres’s strange color. If you did visit Dres you may have seen contrast of color on the surface. Dark brown flatlands and then bright grey mountains appear suddenly. But what could cause such contrast? My hypothesis is that Dres is a remnant of ancient collision. It struck large object which had different composition. Material mixed and made Dres look different. It explains a lot of canyons and valleys on Dres’s surface.It can be a salvage of Dres's orbital inclination and realtively small size(i know that some collison make more mass, but hey! some doesn't!) It also explains asteroids that orbit dres. If I could make a flyby of them I could see the composition of asteroids and potentially find out what was Dres like beforer the collision If you are interested how such hypothesis came into my mind check out an article about Iapetus saturn's moon-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iapetus_(moon) it is pretty cool! And agin i am looking for more interesting hypothesis of yours!
  15. hi hi I would like to share with you what has been, for me, quite the learning experience. Not to mention a mission filled with plotting, thrills, and all the normal kinds of things that happen when you mess with things beyond mortal ken. It all started out as most of these crazy schemes do, with an over ambitious plan. My plan to land a mining platform on Ike and put refueling stations in Ike and Duna orbit was going along swimmingly, with a vast fleet of ships in Low Kerbin Orbit, when suddenly... without warning, the orbital trajectory planners down in the labs realized that the next window to launch a mission to Dres was going to happen before the next window for Duna, not afterwards. Our engineers immediately scrambled to start assembling a space craft, including some never before tested rover designs. (The winning design was the one that didn't explode, so I figured we were good.) Pictured above, the "Rocket Car," rover design passes it's final pre-flight test. Moments after cutting the main engine, about to safely land on Minmus. Pictured below, you can see the behemoth craft in orbit, ready to slooooowly boost the entire mining operation into Dres orbit. I thought docking all those modules together was a pretty impressive feat in its own right, considering the time pressure we were on to get everything out the door on time. Yes, we knew wobble would be an issue, but we planned to take it nice and slow. After all, why launch six ships once, when you can launch one ship in six orbits? Unfortunately, I apparently managed to find a magical resonant frequency, and the entire thing wobbled apart while mission planners looked on helplessly. After about 5 minutes of thrust, we noticed the first signs of wobbling, so we cut engines and planned to pick up again on the next orbit, but the wobbling didn't stop. So then we cut SAS and RCS too, thinking that might allow it to settle down, but the wobbling only got worse. After several more minutes, with no control inputs or thrusting of any kind, several of the modules on the extremities converted themselves from space ships into fireworks. Luckily, I was able to rescue the crew. And thanks to the good work by our legal department, their contracts still required them to go on the mission. Above, you can see the shotgun style approach used to send the hastily rebuilt fleet toward the mid-course plane change points. (I learned a very important skill during this mission: making very precise adjustments to my encounter trajectory with RCS thrusters while at the ascending/descending node, rather than during the initial burn. Also, estimating orbital angles by eyeball is hard.) Pictured below, you can see one of the surface-to-orbit fuel tankers making its capture burn into orbit around Dres. Of course, before the entirety of my Dres fleet had arrived at their destination, it was time to start launching my Duna/Ike mission. With my experience launching the Dres fleet, I was able to launch the eight vessel Duna/Ike fleet in less than two days. Pictured above is the surface refinery module for Ike, with detachable landing boosters, about to be launched with a big interplanetary nuclear booster. Once the second fleet was out the door though, I had to switch back and make sure the first fleet made it into orbit alright. Lucky for me, I had at the very least, two hours between intercept maneuvers. Most of them were a few days apart though, so it all worked out. You can see the Dres orbital refueling station here, just after it finished parking itself in a roughly circular orbit around 99,000 meters above Dres's equator. Still needs to have the refueling rig land before it can fill those tanks though. While Gralyn Kerman was conducting a low altitude (23,000 meter) survey scan of the equatorial region, in hopes of finding an ideal flat spot for the refinery, I noticed a little flag icon appear on the scanner. With curiosity at maximum, Gralyn (the tire repair expert) set the rocket car down to take a closer look. Driving approximately 3 kilometers from the touchdown spot to the point of interest, she managed to avoid flipping the rover even once. She might have made a good pilot as well as an engineer. (I still need to work on precision landing without the aid of targeting beacons from already landed craft.) Turns out, we had stumbled across the landing site of the very first mission to Dres I had made, all those years ago. The mood at mission control was celebratory, little did we know what waited in store for us. Instead, with this historic landing accomplished, the Ike crew wanted their shot at the spotlight. Also, we really needed to get some rocket fuel up to the orbiting tanker, because somewhere along the line, the Duna survey probes' engines turned on and they drained all their propellant. And since we had to drain some propellant out of the Duna lander's tanks to get the probes on their way, nobody in mission control was willing to send Jebediah and company down to the surface until the refueling mission was complete. Believe you me, Jeb was none too happy about having to wait. I think. It is really hard to tell, he always seems happy. Above, you can see the tanker trucks on final approach to the flattest spot I could find near Ike's equator. We all had a bit of a scare when one of the techs pointed out, "Hey, did anyone realize that one of the docking nodes never latched down properly? That's probably why it's dancing about so much." But we were able to set them down after only a couple false starts. Unfortunately, this is when disaster struck. When I focused back on the Dres mission, Grelyn's lander craft was nowhere to be seen! It had just vanished, possibly a victim of the once notorious Space Kraken. She was a brave Kerbal, and she will be missed. Now, it is up to me to see if I can find funding to continue the mission, or if the entire Dres Base will need a rescue craft to come and bring home the surviving crew.
  16. The mission is aimed for exploring 2 asteroids and 1 dwarf planet with an unmanned craft This is the craft you need: it needs scientific instruments ,an individual engine and powerful antenna ,just try to make it as small as possible,okay? Your first stop will be an asteroid You must flyby 15 meters above the surface of it Next step is to flyby Dres .Your periapsis must 75 000 m above Dres. And the last place to visit is Gilly ,you need to establish an orbit around it with periapsis of 55 000 m The difficulty varies in type of propulsion you use! Ion propulsion is hardest, Liquid fuel propulsion is normal,and non individual (another stage with engine) is easy. And remember kids NO CHEATS!!!!mods that dont brake the challenge can be used ,it is not considered a cheating!You can still change route if you want so....But you still need to visit all 3 of them!GG have fun
  17. Welcome to the Dres Awareness Society! Here you can post things about Dres express love for Dres or just do anything to help spread the word about Dres. Some people out there just don't like Dres, and we need to show them that Dres is a great planet too. So please help to support Dres. Show Dres that you love it, and spread awareness about Dres. I like to believe that us at the Dres Awareness Society do not love Dres more than the other planets, but we just think that all planets deserve equality and that Dres has been cheated out of the equality it deserves. @SpaceplaneAddict made a very cool challenge about Dres here.
  18. Download here and install like a mod. Flags will appear towards the top of the global array of select-ables. Yes, flags. Not one but five! Images come at double-res (512x320) and with transparent background but will render as fine as ever in-game and are hence very fit for uses outside the game. Due to the highly wide nature or aspect ratio of the wordmark the 2nd and 3rd flags may tend to vanish on most capsules with their small flag spaces so the 4th and 5th flags which weren't planned for were also made. Honoring @max_creative the owner's impressive designs with stock I incorporated a vanilla flower. In addition, the first flag contains an interpretation of the atomic lander from profile cover image.
  19. So recently i decided to re-create the DAWN mission see for yourself http://imgur.com/a/rqg1e
  20. So i'm trying to recreate the DAWN mission which launched and did a flyby of Mars to then orbit Ceres and Vesta (i think) but im having trouble with the Mars gravity assist to Dres. Please help
  21. So, I'm gonna do a huge Dres Awareness mission to BEAT ALL RECORDS (maybe)! And it will only be launched by 100% reusable SSTOs! Currently in the planning phase, but stay tuned for updates! I of course know how to design and fly SSTOs, but if you guys have good cargo SSTO designs, feel free to share them and we'll pay your space program DOUBLE the roots it cost to build it. (Even though I'm in Sandbox for this, but hey). Let's see why the Kerbals decided to do this: -STORY - PART 1- "Koffee, please," said Gene. A robotic voice announced "Preparing koffee... Your koffee is ready, sir." The new Robo-Interns Werhner had invented were amazing! They do everything the real interns do, and we don't even have to pay them. "Thanks!" Gene entered the meeting room. "What're we gonna do today?" Gus read out the things going on today: "Well, with this next module landing, the UKS Duna colony will be halfway done." "Bo-ring. Does it have a kOS computer?" "Uhh, yeah, why?" "Have Linus remotely program it to automate the landing. Now that that's done..." "Some dude named Hallock popped out of a Munolith. The Mun Pathfinder mobile base has been rerouted from Elcano duty to pick him up." "Ok, can we interrogate him ask him some questions?" "Yeah, anomaly sensors say that he came out of the 'Forgotten Space Program' save." --We interrupt this playback to inform you that we at KAL 9000's space program have demolished the fourth wall since forever-- "OK, have Bill put up a 'Found' poster in the forums." "Jeb's testing a new part that Bill .cfg'd in." "What is it?" "Jeb's been begging for it for a while. It's a booster with infinite fuel and 10000 thrust." "Of course." "That's it." "Dangit, nothing to do... Wait! We'll go to Dres! Make it a challenge!"
  22. Space Dres the final- Explosions! Hey! Jeb, No interrupting the intro! *duct tapes the forth wall* Ok, but basically this is my Dres awareness mission, because Dres is the best planet ever! No pics right now, because I didn't have time to upload to imgur. *face palm* But can upload and post them tomorrow. Basically, I launched two really big crafts. A Watney class cruiser, and a Diamond class tug. Uhh... Yeah. *another face palm* At least I had time for the big Dres photo. *third face palm*
  23. So, I decided to take a manned mission to Dres - the furthest Ive ever taken a manned mission in my KSP career. I built a new ship capable of taking 15 kerbals to Dres. I also built a refinery, miner, tug and lander - all combined in 3 flights to Dres. Then I thought - I need to keep a record of this, could be interesting - so I decided to chronicle the whole thing over on my blog - you can find part one here : Kryten's Kerblog : The High Road Part 1 The aim of the mission - to see if I can do it, and maybe to snag a dresteroid into the bargain. Heres a shot of the Explorer 2, just to whet your appetites, hope you enjoy:
  24. So, I based my mission on the idea of flying into the orbit of the sun, refueling withe an asteroid, then flying to Dres and refueling on another asteroid. However, I don't see any asteroids near Dres. I was wondering if I have to be in orbit of Dres, or maybe just really close to it?
